Full Moon In Aquarius Marks End Of Grand Water Trine!

We are basking in the Full Moon in Aquarius which was exact yesterday morning at 11:15am PDT. This Full Moon occurred in the very first degree of Aquarius. The energy of any Full Moon lasts while the Moon stays in the sign that the event occurs in. Since it happened at the very first degree of Aquarius, we get today and tomorrow to take advantage of what this energy has to offer. After what we have just come through, the more time we have to take stock the better.

We entered this week as if in an entirely new world. The Grand Water Trine came to a close just one day before this powerful lunation. Full Moons are culmination points. They are that moment each month when we can see the most of what is available to be seen in territory that is normally invisible to us; the Unconscious Mind. This is so important to our effective functioning in the world since so much, in fact the much greater part of who we are, is invisible. The Full Moon gives us an opportunity to take stock, harvest the benefits we have received, and cast off that which is no longer useful. Since we are coming out of such a majestic process these past months, we need this vantage point desperately. Use it wisely.

The I AM Consciousness of the Sun left Cancer and entered his home sign of Leo less than an hour before the Moon moved into Aquarius and opposed him. This changeover of the Sun from the Cancer archetype to Leo was a very abrupt finish to what was truly a magnificent passage. It was as if our Consciousness leapt out of the Water and into the Fire and then danced with the Moon. Even if you still aren’t glimpsing the miracles that have occurred this summer, trust me, they did occur. If you don’t know what the value is yet, by the time Mercury finishes up his direct shadow between now and August 3rd, you will probably have the insight you need to appreciate all that went down since the beginning of June.

This form of the “Grand” Water Trine is indeed over, but the Trine between Neptune and Saturn will be with us for a few more months and Chiron in Pisces enters this picture as well. What this means is that for the rest of the summer, we are experiencing an unprecedented level of access to Divine Consciousness and the miraculous speed of manifestation where thought becomes form in an instant. This is always true, but Saturn in Scorpio means that class is still in session on how to navigate this Truth and the Lord of Kharma is not giving us any wiggle room; he will kick your ass if you are still not taking full responsibility for this power.

What the Grand Water Trine offered was a shift in our Personal Consciousness as it relates to this power. All of the personal planets (the inner ones that represent our individual Self) activated this transit, making the experience of the past two months decidedly, well, personal. This particular Full Moon is very much connected to your outer landscape as Aquarius rules The Community and The Collective. A great theme of this lunation might connect to the idea of taking what you know now and bringing it into your world to do some good with it.

The next few weeks are going to be very process-oriented. If you recall, I made a great deal out of the fact that when all this Cancer energy started that Venus was the first planet to move into that sign to get the ball rolling. Well, she’s at it again in a way by changing signs yesterday too, just as the entire Grand Water Trine came to a completion. You can’t make this stuff up. She has moved into the sign of Virgo and this is a very good thing for us. While she’s not terribly comfortable in this sign, Virgo is the archetype who knows exactly how to process anything. And certainly a LOT has come up in the past two months that will need to be processed over the next few weeks and Venus in Virgo along with Mercury retracing his steps will be very supportive to that end.

My recommendation for today and tomorrow is not ritual based, but more of a ruminative stock-taking. A Full Moon is harvest time, which must include an inventory process. This is very much like the moment at the end of The Wizard of Oz where Dorothy is asked what she has learned. It is so important for her to know what benefit she gained while traipsing around Oz because she now has a responsibility to bring her wisdom back home and share it with her fellow Kansans. This is the same for all of us in this moment. The Grand Water Trine was like a trip through a magical world where many unusual and mysterious things occurred. It is time to take stock of what we have learned so we can share it with the world. Then click your heals three times and be thankful you are, at long last, on solid ground once more.

New Moon In Cancer: The Water Level Rises!

If you still feel a bit overwhelmed with all the water energy, take a big gulp of air, because the Moon enters the Cancer domain Saturday afternoon around 3:15pm PDT as she prepares for the New Moon early Monday morning (at 12:15am PDT, just after midnight Sunday night).  This is the intention setting, seed-planting opportunity we see every month.  Of course, this particular seed might be best cultivated hydroponically, what with all of this flow.  So, make sure your life preserver is filled with air and prepare yourself for another wave of fluid trajectory late this weekend.

The Cancer New Moon is helping us all birth the Divine Feminine on the planet right now, which is how we bring balance to an unbalanced world.  But the work is personal; that is, we create the balance we seek in our own hearts and it shows up out there as Peace.  We do this one person at a time, one tiny bit at a time.  This is why it is so important to do our individual soul work, for nothing short of Peace on Earth is what is at stake.

Cancer is the realm of personal, hidden issues of an emotional nature.  It is also the archetype that rules self-care, nurturance and profound intimacy.  This entire Grand Water Trine has been designed to bring to the surface the deep wounds that are ready to be healed and this New Moon is one of the high points of this journey.  It’s a new beginning, capable of birthing a fresh start in all the tender corners of your experience.

I know more than a few of you are feeling quite overwhelmed right now, but we are not without some assistance in this process.  The retrograding Mercury in Cancer is helping us make sense of this new territory we are navigating.  Mercury will meet up with the Sun on Tuesday, bringing some much needed clarity to this sometimes heavy and muffled landscape.  This is part of every Mercury retrograde cycle.  When the planet that rules The Mind (Mercury) meets up with Consciousness itself (The Sun), we are presented with the awareness of exactly what the current cycle is all about.  This is just two days after the New Moon, so hold on.  Help is on the way.

Saturn’s movement is beneficial as well.  He has been retrograde for the past five months and just two hours before the New Moon is exact, he will turn around and go direct.  While he has been inwardly focused, our sense of learning has also been an interior experience.  As he turns direct, we too will be more able to move confidently out and about in our lives.  We will be able to take the wisdom and integration that his retrograde cycle helped us generate and bring it into our world with more focus and direction.

Yet another form of support comes via an interaction between Venus and Chiron.  When we are indeed ready to drop an old pattern or habit, the most powerful geometrical shape that can assist us in this is what is known as the Inconjunct, an angle of 150 degrees.  This is the fork in the road where an old path is abandoned and a new, lesser travelled path can be traversed.  There is such a transit on Monday between Venus (Love) and Chiron (Healing).  When these two archetypes get together, enormous shifts are possible.

This New Moon truly has the capacity to help you allow you to consciously choose the direction of your own Healing.  If you’ve been diligent about cleaning out the cobwebs from your Heart Center, this should be fairly simple (though perhaps not easy) to accomplish.

Though we are far from done with this Grand Water Trine, this is the moment to take stock of what is transforming.  Rather than have this be a mental experience filled with stunning clarity, let it wash over you with a more mindless sense of fullness.  Make sure that your ritual on Sunday involves water:   Take a bath, go for a walk near (and in) some water, have a swim.  Whatever you do, get wet.  And in the spirit of baptism and purification, allow the water to cleanse your pain and help you move into the next chapter that we’re in the process of brewing with a clean heart.

As July unfolds, there is much more to come as Mars, ruler of the physical body, brings up the rear and finally ingresses Cancer on the 13th.  When Mars enters the mix, things will change quite dramatically.  Look for more on that in the coming weeks.  In the meantime, I send you all waves of love and blessing!

Full Moon In Capricorn – Let’s Go Fly A Kite!!

The Full Moon in Capricorn is exact this Sunday morning at 4:30am PDT.  By now, you have all probably read about it being a “Super Moon,” which is when she is at her closest proximity to Earth.  The Sun is still in his three-day Solstice placement, where he is the highest in the ecliptic, the system of parallels that the planets orbit around.  Given the Sun is at his zenith and the Moon is at her nearest, the beautiful dance between the Masculine and Feminine, the Conscious and the Unconscious, has never been so prominent in our awareness.  Remember that if it is happening out there in the Cosmos, it is also happening inside of you.

I have written and spoken extensively about the Grand Water Trine that we are smack dab in the middle of.  The Sun moving into Cancer this past Thursday night is increasing the power of this healing structure.  We are heading for a deep activation of this when the Sun hits 5 degrees of Cancer next week.  At the same time, Jupiter will move into Cancer bringing even more volume to the flow of Water in our archetypal makeup.  In this way, the peak of this experience is still yet to come.  That said, this Full Moon will activate something that I have not yet articulated that will illuminate just how transformative this time is.

A Grand Water Trine divides the cosmos into three equal parts resulting in a large equilateral triangle.  A Trine in and of itself cannot actually bring about change; it can only increase the flow of energy that is available.  Add just one point in opposition to any one of the corners that make up that triangle and the resulting shape looks exactly like a kite, which is the term used in astrology to describe such a patterning.  And what do kites do?  They fly!   Suddenly, the increased flow of the Trine can actually burst forth into a soaring experience of shifting consciousness.

The key activation point of this current configuration is in the Cancer domain as Mercury, Venus, the Sun and soon Jupiter and Mars all bring this shape to life.  The real big news, however, is Pluto hanging out in Capricorn, the sign that is at the opposite position in the sky to Cancer.  These Cancer activation points generate the tail of this particular kite, but the head of the kite is Pluto, the Lord of the Underworld and the archetype of total transformation.  By the time we get to the end of summer, nothing will have escaped the crucible of alchemy that this moment has generated.

The Full Moon in Capricorn occurs just close enough to Pluto in astrological terms to be within what is known as the “orb of influence.”  An orb in mathematics is an arc of energy that implies enough proximity to engender a powerful relationship between two points.  This Full Moon, which is super-sized and powerful in and of itself, will also reflect the Sun’s light at the moment when it is at his absolute highest heights of expressiveness.  And if that’s not big enough, it is within the orb of influence to Pluto, pulling his capacity for transmutation well into the mix, making the Kite that is our lives right now fly like mad.  What an opportunity to harness universal energy and cosmic power!

Capricorn is the archetype that allows us to aim high and go far.  The Goat’s trip to the mountaintop not only signifies the achieving of goals and aspirations, it also represents our ability to connect to the Divine that is the highest part of our consciousness.  One of the most potent tools of the Full Moon is the release of that which no longer serves.  If you combine these two elements in your Full Moon ritual this weekend, you will be well on your way to embodying the spiritual mastery that this time has to offer.

Capricorn is grounded Earth energy.  Tap into your wordless knowing, that part of your being that can lean into a moment and declare, “This feels right to me.”  Even if your cognitive mind has no idea what you are talking about, your heart knows you are on the right track.  If you feel the need to identify a habit or pattern that you know has blocked you in the past and you are ready to let go of, use that as the portal to your ritual experience.  Write something that you feel complete and done with on a piece of toilet paper and flush it down the toilet and be rid of it courtesy of the Grand Water Trine.  Then put on some rhythmic music and just dance around the living room, feeling into your life and what you are creating for yourself and use the mantra:  This. Feels.  Right.  To.  Me.  The Heart’s Intelligence speaks to us in this way and when you learn how to tap into it, it offers an undeniable clarity that will help you fly your own Kite into the magnificent future you are creating.
